Kagewani is a unique anime with a unique art style and animation. The story is pretty weird specially the type of monsters in the anime. If I have to describe the anime I would say its a combination between Aoi Bungaku and Mushishi. I wasn’t a fan of the art when I first saw the anime but it was surprisingly interesting and entertaining. Even though the episodes were 7 min long the story was solid and the plot had some depth to it. Its not the best horror out there but its one of the few horror anime I’ve came across more of the anime are thriller… Horror are pretty rare to come across. If your looking for a good horror to watch I recommend you watch Kagewani.

Overall Rate: 6/10
